The public works department works hard to make driving safer and easier on our 450 (+/-) roadways in snowy weather.
Depending on the duration and amount of snowfall, township trucks may plow your road several times. As the snow rolls off the plows, it will accumulate in the driveway aprons. Please understand that this is unavoidable and it is the homeowner’s responsibility to clear the driveway apron.
Listed below is a step-by-step explanation of the snow removal process in the township…
- At the onset of a storm, road salt is put down at all stop signs, hills and intersections. Once the snow has accumulated to 3 inches, the snow plowing operations begins.
- Once snow plowing has begun, our goal is to plow streets curb to curb starting with all main roads, then secondary roads followed by the courts. To achieve this goal all vehicles must be off the roadways.
- When a snow removal operation is underway, public works employees work around the clock to provide the best possible service to the residents of Voorhees Township.
- Once the snowfall stops, it takes approximately 10 additional hours for our 26 plow trucks to complete the snow removal operation.
- When clearing a driveway or sidewalk, do not put the snow back into the street. We plow to keep the snow off the roadways and putting the snow back into the street creates a hazard. Please place the snow on your curb or lawn area.
Please be aware that not all roads are plowed or salted by the Voorhees Township Public Works Department. All county roads are maintained by the Camden County Public Works Department.
